SUITE ROMANTIQUE

AWAY, AWAY
Like a secret meant to keep
Like the stars when you’re asleep
Evermore my heart you sweep away, away

All the clouds that never cleared
All the cold through all my years
Frozen in these tears you sweep away, away

Come, now love has come to carry us
Away, away, away, away, away, away
Come, the warm, warm wind will marry us
Away, away, away, away, away, away

Nearer love to thee, nearer love to thee
Nearer, love, can no one be today

One, beyond the day they bury us
Away, away, away, away, away, away

Nearer love to thee, nearer love to thee
Nearer, love, can no one be today

Come, the warm, warm wind will marry us
Away, away, away, away, away, away

SUN IN MY EYES
This must be the dawn
Must be the sun in my eyes
Must be the morning, opening skies
Do I dare and rub my eyes upon
This glow and find it all be gone?
How did this blessing fall upon me
Without a warning?

Light, that blinding light
One look and countless prayers
Unanswered all requite

Sunset, sunrise
When you close and open your eyes

Oh you must be my dawn
Must be the sun in my eyes
Must be my morning, opening skies
I awake but dreams don’t disappear
I rub my eyes and you’re still here
The greatest blessing fell upon me
Without a warning

Light, that blinding light
One look and countless prayers
Unanswered all requite

Sunset, sunrise
When you close and open your eyes

STARLIT
I swear I felt the ocean rise
From down deep within it, up into my eyes
It took just a minute, but out poured my life
Like water rolling down the plain
That tired world can turn and turn
I’ll never find this love again
But did you see that angel smile

And open up a thousand doors
One touch and you know it
All my love was yours before I could show it
And I swear this heart was never born until today
Just look at all those stars tonight
They’ve come to carry us away
And when you found my waiting hand

The room became a foreign land
All magic and starlit
And my heart’s white sand bled back into scarlet
In a single look the world’s a million miles away
But nothing ever felt so real
The world’s not taking this away
And when your eyes were safe in mine

I swear I felt the ocean rise
From down deep within it, up into my eyes
It took just a minute, but out poured my life
Like water rolling down the plain

Just look at all those stars tonight
They’ve come to carry us away
Away, away
